Gary Daoust was awarded First Team All-American in the16-19 age division and the prestigious FCWT "Player of the Year" in the Eastern region. "The Boys 16-19 division First Team was especially strong this year, making the process of selecting a Player of the Year quite a challenge. The young men selected this season have demonstrated excellent consistency in their golf performance. Gary Daoust, our East Region "Player of the Year", had two wins and finished in the Top 10 in all 8 of his FCWT tournament appearances," said FCWT Staff. Connor Chesky was awarded Second Team All-American in the 13-15 age division. During 2012-2013 Chesky earned his first win at Falcons Fire and it was the very first win recorded by a student of the Lee Westwood Golf School-Orlando.
